The Shadow Percussion Project




This is absolutely the best thing I've seen for ages (thanks, John). The after-school percussion group at Minnetonka High School, Minneapolis, rehearsed for months and can now play two tracks from DJ Shadow's 'Endtroducing' album. The music was arranged by 25 year-old geographer/law student/vibraslap enthusiast Brian Udelhofen, who teaches the group. The Shadow Percussion Project page links to this amazing video [65mb WMV] of the group's live performance in May 2005. They play 'Building Steam with a Grain of Salt' and 'Changeling'. What's amazing is how much like the record they sound (given the rather fuzzy audio), at least on 'Building Steam'. The drummers recreate the glitchy MPC-60 loop editing pretty much perfectly. Medals all round.

It's very strange to see a maestro conducting a bunch of dressed-up kids working on compilation of samples that Josh Davis created.

The drummer in the video wasn't too bad, though he seemed to get lost in some of the more complex rhythms (probably due to the Josh's original being 'mashed' together using digital editing).

A wonderful performance. Download this now. I don't know what to say.
